2018 was certainly one to be remembered for Blaise Matuidi. Not only did the midfielder win a Scudetto and Coppa Italia in his first season at Juventus, but also added to his trophy haul by becoming a World Champion with France at the World Cup in Russia.
The Frenchman, who became the 25th Bianconeri player to win a World Cup (a record that Juventus boasts) was recognised for his efforts with a prize awarded to him by the city of Turin.
Matuidi was given the accolade during the "Atleti Pergamena Dello Sport" event held at the Teatro Carignano in Turin, in the presence of Mayor Chiara Appendino and the Councilor for Sports Roberto Finardi.
The prize was handed out to athletes, athletes from Turin, players from sports clubs in Turin and those who have achieved international sporting results throughout the course of 2018.
Matuidi said: "I am happy and proud to be a part of this team, thank you very much for the award that I have received."
The Bianconeri number 14 wasn't the only Juventus player to be honoured. Mario Mandzukic, whose Croatia team finished as World Cup runners-up, with the striker scoring in the final was also awarded.
